??? Hi I was out this weekend and had a tree limb or rock bend the rod to the load sensing proportioning valve
out of shape. I think it shoud bend down but I can not remember how much. If some one with a FJ 62 measure
theirs and or take a picture so I can get my brakes back in shape that would be great.
Thanks and Merry Christmas. JL

Hey guys I can not tell from the manuals what the rod looks like only how to use gauges to set the pressure.
Any help would be good news. I do not have the gauges. JL

It is sort of a curve shape, forms an arch. I cant remember the adj procedure. The oem book lays it out. I set mine so that it "thinks" the back end is heaver than it is and gives more RR brakes action.. The shape of the rod no longer matters on mine. I read about the pressure testing of it, gave up on that and just started adjusting.
